My husband and I decided to give the Black Bull one more chance after our last disappointing experience. We ordered from the breakfast menu. My husband's egg order of sunny side up can as hard boiled disasters. My breakfast of three items had only one that was fit for consumption. The omelette was great but the toast was covered in...

We have been to The Black Bull in Burlington Ontario MANY times over the past years. The pub recently changed ownership and it's definitely for the better. Although we never had a complaint previously, the new owner(s) Rob et al, have improved the atmosphere AND the food. New Years eve was EXCELLENT, both the late night buffet AND the entertainment....

After reading comments on Tripadvisor my family and I decided to give the Black Bull a try. Im glad we did for one main reason....the food. From the outside the place looks small but once you get inside it opens up to a rather large sit down restaurant and bar. Our waitress Holly was nice and efficient. I had the... More

We went to the Black Bull tonight for dinner with 2 kids in tow. From the outside, we weren't sure of what to expect. However, we were not disappointed. First let us mention that kids eat free on the weekends with purchase of adult entrees. We're not talking skimpy little kid meals either! They had fish and chips and a... More

Recently went to the Black Bull for lunch. The atmosphere could have been better but the food was good. REALLY GOOD! We ordered the burgers, the valley salad with yoghurt dressing and fish and chips for the kids. The burger was FANTASTIC! Nice tangy bar-b-que sauce in the very generous sized burger. The salad was better than expected. The fish... More

We go to the Black Bull for dinner and lunch occasionally...but their Wednesday Wing Night takes the cake. 49 cent HUGE JUICY CRISPY wings and $7.49 mini pitchers keep us coming back. The service is fantastic and new owner/management really turned the place around. Give them a shot this Wednesday and you'll never order wings anywhere else.

We went more out of curiosity one morning for breakfast and found the food a pleasant surprise. Quick and hot while reasonably priced. Décor a little tired but as a pub, it is what it is!

Took the family for dinner tonight. Great food and great service. Prime rib was great and the kid's meals were awesome - great homemade chicken fingers too. We'll be back for sure.

This place recently got new management and I'll tell you - what a difference. The place was falling apart before. It's quite a landmark place in Burlington. My wife and I had our stag and doe there about 7 yrs ago and it was ok, but since the new management, they've cleaned up a bunch of the restaurant. They have... More
